Renaissance, Italy, 1494. In a tale of romance set against the backdrop of the discovery of the New World, Valentina Vitale flees from an undesirable marriage and a controlling father. When she discovers a mysterious amulet, two vastly different men pay her notice - but can she trust that their interest is genuine, or are they motivated by the allure of the necklace? Valentina is catapulted into the political intrigues and dark places of Mantuan society, where she risks her life to uncover the mystery of the necklace - and learns that love is the greatest mystery of all.
